Friday Favorites: Hyped Books!

It’s time for another Friday Favorites hosted by Kibby @ Something of the Book! This weekly meme is where you get to share a list of all your favourites based on the list of prompts on Kibby’s page. Sounds fun, right? This week’s prompt is: favorite hyped books! Oh, the hype. It’s something that all of us are familiar with and all have different reactions to, right?

Some readers feel FOMO and immediately race out to buy whatever book is currently all over the gram. Some wait a little while for the hype to die down before caving and reading the book. Others stay as far away from hyped books as possible and sometimes never pick them up until the hype is completely dead and years have passed, if ever. I’m pretty much a mix of all of these reactions — sometimes I can’t stand the FOMO and race out to get the book ASAP, but most of the time I wait until the hype dies down a little before I cave. To be honest though, most times when I get the book as soon as it comes out, I usually let it linger on my shelf (unintentionally!) and next thing you know, the next hyped book is out, that ‘old-new’ book stays untouched, and the cycle continues ๐Ÿ˜‚ There are SO MANY HYPED BOOKS coming out all the time, I feel like I can never keep up, and so (mostly) I don’t. Pretty much all of the books mentioned below have already made countless repeat appearances on my blog (sorry I’m boring!) so it’s no surprise that they’re coming back again as my favorites!

With such a long introduction, I’m going to keep this short and sweet by sticking with sharing the book covers. These are just 20 of the most hyped books that I could think of (lies, they’re the books that are already in my media gallery but all of them are hyped)!

Do you recognize all of these hyped books? Would any of them make your list of favorite hyped reads or am I the only one who loves them?

    1. This is actually so true and I never thought about it like that! ๐Ÿคฃ I love talking about books too and it’s not often that people have read the same books I have unless they’re hyped, so that’s a great point, Ali! ๐Ÿ˜


    1. Awww, YAY! I’m glad this post could do that for you ๐Ÿ˜ There are so many hyped books out there and sometimes it can be so overwhelming and then so underwhelming when the book doesn’t do the trick for you. But there are defo some great ones out there!

    1. Yes yes yes to all of those! I’m so glad that you agree ๐Ÿ˜ It’s always a little hit or miss with hyped books but I think I’ve been lucky that the majority of the hyped books I’ve read have been winners for me ๐Ÿ˜… It’s always sooo disappointing when it’s not!


    1. I think that’s the cover for the Kindle edition! But also it could be the Aussie version? Lol I haven’t seen it anywhere else though! I did really enjoy Serpent & Dove but I’ve heard people were underwhelmed with it too. Hope it’s a winner for you though! ๐Ÿ™Œ


  2. There are quite a few books I loved on here. Where the Crawdads Sing was so super hyped and it was so disappointing. I didn’t like it at all!

    Also Serpent & Dove. So hyped up but I didn’t love it! Sorcery of Thorns, and Ember in the Ashes and Throne of Glass I all liked (or really liked) though!

    1. Oh no, I’m sorry to hear Crawdads didn’t work for you! It was a much different read than what I expected but I loved it so much. But I guess we can’t always love all the books (hyped or not), right? We’re bound to run into one or two (or more!) that just aren’t our jam! ๐Ÿ˜…
